Yeah, was looking forward to a busy(looking at least) neon lit intersection. The place is a bit mono-cultural Im afraid, how about some cinemas, video game parlous, something like that ? Its all a bit developer led, thought the Docklands was 'planned' !

With a name like 888 Collins what did you expect

You would think that with all the complaints about Docklands some effort would have been made by now to inject some life and excitement into the area.

As I have said before, you need a connection down the end there to the south of the river, let people come through the docklands to the cbd, which then generates foot/bike/tram traffic through the area. It'll be another decade once apartments up along North Wharf get built and occupied that this area will have any meaningful foot traffic.

?? Docklands was quite specifically unplanned, and wholly developer-driven. We have one Mr Jeffrey Kennett to thank for that.
And if you were planning a new suburb the size of the CBD, and had all that room to play with, you'd put the Stadium at Central Pier, right smack in the middle of the waterfront zone, wouldn't you? And you'd require people to leap over 17 sets of railway lines to get there. And you'd run a major arterial in Wurindjeri Way right around it's circumference at grade level rather than cut and covering it, and then require them to get over that as well.
And then, as "destination drawcard" put in a crappy third rate disount mall and Ferris wheel? And you'd make sure basically 90% of the towers were built without any provision for street level retail, and you'd let the developers design their own individual masterplans for their own individual precincts, and you'd ...
No, I'll stop. My head is swimming. In short we've basically done "how to arse up urban renewal in six easy steps".
